National Advisory Council on Indian Education (NACIE) Open Teleconference Meeting, 64451-64452 [2020-22647]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 198 / Tuesday, October 13, 2020 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES to academic achievement and aids in fair reporting of results. The intent of the law is to provide representative sample data on student achievement for the nation, the states, and subpopulations of students and to monitor progress over time. The request to conduct NAEP 2021, including operational assessments and pilot tests: Operational national/state/TUDA Digitally Based Assessments (DBA) in mathematics and reading at grades 4 and 8, and Puerto Rico in mathematics at grades 4 and 8; and operational national DBA in U.S. history and civics at grade 8 was approved in April 2020, with a further update to the materials approved in July 2020. This request is to conduct NAEP operational assessments in 2021 and will follow the traditional NAEP design which assesses each student in 60-minutes for one cognitive subject. Given the COVID–19 outbreak, NAEP requires personal protective equipment for field staff and must plan for additional sessions given that students may attend school on a staggered schedule. NAEP was not able to secure additional funding from Congress to cover the additional costs for personal protective equipment, necessary increases in field staff, and other operational costs that would be required to assess the full sample. As such, this Amendment reflects the elimination of the national-only assessments (grade 8 U.S. History and Civics, and age 17 Long-Term Trend), a smaller sample of students within each state for reading and mathematics, and the elimination of TUDAs from the 2021 sample. This Amendment also includes the addition of an online version of the student questionnaires that will be available to sampled students who are remote and not able to be assessed inperson, as well as the addition of some questionnaire items on teacher, student, and school experiences conditioned by the COVID–19 pandemic. The final Materials Update #3 is scheduled for October of 2020. The NAEP results will be reported to the public through the Nation’s Report Card as well as other online NAEP tools. Dated: October 6, 2020. Stephanie Valentine, PRA Coordinator, Strategic Collections and Clearance, Governance and Strategy Division, Office of Chief Data Officer, Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development.

ECA asks DOE/FE to increase the approved non-FTA export volume for the ECA Large-Scale Project from 475 billion cubic feet per year (Bcf/yr) to 636 Bcf/yr of natural gas—an increase of 161 Bcf/yr. ECA filed the Application under the Natural Gas Act (NGA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 29, 2019, in Order No. 4365, DOE/FE authorized ECA to export domestically produced natural gas to Mexico in a SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 volume up to 545 Bcf/yr, and to reexport a portion of this natural gas in the form of LNG to non-FTA countries in a volume equivalent to 475 Bcf/yr of natural gas, pursuant to NGA section 3(a), 15 U.S.C. 717b(a).1 ECA is authorized to re-export this LNG from the ECA Large-Scale Project, to be located on the site of ECA’s existing LNG import terminal north of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. ECA states that it has determined that the full design of the ECA Large-Scale Project will be capable of producing an additional volume of LNG for re-export. In light of this design increase, ECA asks DOE/FE to amend Order No. 4365 to authorize the re-export of an additional 161 Bcf/yr of natural gas in the form of LNG from the ECA Large-Scale Project to non-FTA countries.2 ECA seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the natural gas and/or LNG at the time of export. ECA requests the authorization for a term to commence on the earlier of the date of first export or seven years from the issuance of the requested authorization, and to extend through December 31, 2050. Additional details can be found in ECA’s Application, posted on the DOE/ FE website at: https://www.energy.gov/ sites/prod/files/2020/09/f79/ Energia%20Costa%20Azul%20%20Design%20Increase%2018-145LNG.pdf DOE/FE Evaluation In reviewing ECA’s Application, DOE will consider any issues required by law or policy. DOE will consider domestic need for the natural gas, as well as any other issues determined to be appropriate, including whether the arrangement is consistent with DOE’s policy of promoting competition in the marketplace by allowing commercial parties to freely negotiate their own trade arrangements. As part of this analysis, DOE will consider the study entitled, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (2018 LNG Export Study),3 and 1 Energı´a Costa Azul, S. de R.L. de C.V., DOE/FE Order No. 4365, FE Docket No. 18–145–LNG, Opinion and Order Granting Long-Term Authorization to Re-Export U.S-Sourced Natural Gas in the Form of Liquefied Natural Gas from Mexico to Non-Free Trade Agreement Countries (ECA Large-Scale Project) (Mar. 29, 2019). 2 DOE/FE will review ECA’s request for an amendment to its existing FTA export authorization, as well as its request for an additional amount for use as fuel for pipeline transportation or liquefaction in Mexico, separately pursuant to section 3(c) of the NGA, 15 U.S.C. 717b(c). 3 See NERA Economic Consulting, Macroeconomic Outcomes of Market Determined Levels of U.S. LNG Exports (June 7, 2018), available E:\FR\FM\13OCN1.SGM 13OCN1
